Special NGC San Francisco Cable Car Label for 2017-S Proof Silver Eagle

Posted on 4/4/2017

NGC will offer a new label to celebrate the release of the 2017-S Proof Silver Eagle, which will be released in a set limited to just 75,000 pieces.

The US Mint has announced that the Congratulations Set will go on sale April 4. Surprisingly, the Congratulations Set contains an S-mintmarked 2017 Proof Silver Eagle, not a W-mintmarked coin as one might expect. Only 75,000 of these sets will be sold, which will make the 2017-S Proof Silver Eagle the second-rarest in the series after the famous 1995-W.

All 2017-S Proof Silver Eagles will be attributed with "CONGRATULATIONS SET" on the NGC certification label. NGC will also offer a special San Francisco Cable Car label (#854) for no additional fee. This label will be the default label for these coins. IMPORTANT NOTE: The San Francisco Cable Car label will not be available until April 19. If you would like your coins back prior to April 19, request either Blue Early Releases (#378) or Blue First Releases (#379).
